Comics by ComiXology is a good-looking comics-reader which includes a great catalog

There are coming up lots of comics reader for mobile devices, although they seem just a few if we compare them with news or e-books readers. Actually, finding a really good comics reader has become a tough task. However, ComiXology has done its best to launch a comic reader that surpasses most of the others.

It's set in a good-looking HOLO layout. It looks like Google Play with a featured highlighted comics at the top and a a vertical swiping list of other suggestions (by category). You can navigate from “featured” tab to “Just added” (latest) or “Popular” (best rated/most downloaded). You can also see your own library or visit the comic store. Most of the comics are paid although you can find some free too. The only catch: you need to create an account for getting access to the store, otherwise you won't be able to purchase/download comics. Flip pages by swiping, pinch for zooming and set other reading preferences from settings.

In a few words, an app which comics lovers cannot miss.

    Wouldn't mind a comment section for each comic to find out other readers opinions but great app anyway :-)

    Love how fluid it feels to read comics off this app and I like the caption to caption reading (no spoilers as you turn the page and see that the character dies at the end of the next page)

    Why the hell can you no longer bill your purcheses to your mobile carrier? Since this option has been removed this app now sucks.

    There are tons of comics on here to purchase; also some free comics too. I like the panel by panel viewer, which works really well.
